North of Botswana's Moremi National Park is a series of large floodplains dotted with small palm islands and interspersed with large forested areas. Here, the 94km2 (60,000-hectare) Vumbura Reserve – known for wonderfully varied and high densities of game – is shared between Vumbura Plains and its smaller sister camp, Little Vumbura. Vumbura Plains is effectively two adjacent camps run semi-independently: North Camp and South Camp. Imagine a luxury hotel of contemporary, minimalist design, deep in the Delta, and you’re nearly there.

Our view of Vumbura Plains

Vumbura Plains is not a typical bush lodge by any stretch of the imagination. Dubbed a premier camp by its owners, it is unlikely to appeal to someone who enjoys a more traditional safari camp. However, it should appeal to someone who ‘wants it all’: a very good game experience with exceptionally high standards of service, attention to individual needs (and delivering on them), excellent food and luxurious surroundings. All of this comes at a supplement over the cost of most other Okavango camps – around £270–406 extra per person sharing per night, depending on the season. While it isn’t cheap, we think that this is a camp that delivers.
